Children’s Dentistry

Children’s Dentistry Brisbane

A friendly dentistry service for your child.

Our practice is dedicated to looking after the health of you and your family. The development, growth and health of adult teeth are greatly influenced by the baby teeth before them. This is why, at My Dental Care @ West End, we take special care in ensuring your child’s smile will be healthy and strong for life.

Pleasant visits to your dentist promote the establishment of trust and confidence in your child that will last a lifetime.  Our goal is to help all children feel good about visiting the dentist and teaching them how to care for their teeth.

Why should my child see the dentist?

Having a dentist check your child’s mouth can prevent tooth decay problems and give you an idea of the best way to take care of your child’s teeth. The sooner your child is introduced to the dentist, the quicker your child realises that visiting the dentist is not an experience to fear, but one that’s calm and stress free. If your child visits the dentist for regular check-ups, this can build their confidence up so that if a problem occurs they will be willing to see the dentist.

Another advantage of seeing the dentist regularly is that any problems can be caught and treated easily. Even though children use their baby teeth, problems with these could cause future problems when their permanent adult teeth start to come through.

When should my child start seeing the dentist?

Taking your child to the dentist should start reasonably soon after the eruption of their first tooth. The recommended time is between 6 months to 1 year old.

How can I care for my child’s oral health?

The quality of your oral health does not start when you reach adulthood.

In the early days of your child brushing their teeth, they may need extra supervision of a bit of help to make sure they are doing it properly. If you get them into a good routine of brushing their teeth in the morning and before bed, their good oral health regime can continue as they get older.

As well as a good cleaning routine, ensuring your child eats balanced variety of nutritious food is a good way to keep up their oral health. This involves limiting sugary drinks like fruit juice or soda drinks and opting for milk or water instead.
